short loaves?

Hi everyone! I am new here and new to bread baking.


I started a couple of weeks ago and my first two loaves were extraordinary, but everything I have baked since then has been short and squatty. What could I be doing wrong? The bread tastes great it just doesn't seem to rise at all after it goes in the oven.
